Inclusive Growth and Inequalities
The deadline for the MDGs is fast approaching and there has been intensified discussions in the past two years on a successor framework to the Post -2015 Development Agenda. The UN Open Working Group recently proposed a set
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that comprises seventeen 17 goals accompanied by targets that will further be elaborated through indicators focused on measurable outcomes.
Africa has also come up with the African Common Position (CAP) on the post- 2015 development agenda which has six priority areas - structural transformation and inclusive growth; science, technology and innovation, people-centered development; environmental sustainability and natural disaster management; peace and security, and financing and partnerships (The Africa Report, 2014). This paper looks at inequality and inclusive growth in the context of structural transformation in Ethiopia- a priority area both in the CAP and in the context of post-2015 development agenda.
